Today we went to see a new local cardiologist recommended by our pediatrician. The Love Magnet showed she still remembered the routine for being weighed and measured. She held still for the echo. (Proud Mom Moment: when the radiologist (echo-ologist?) asked her to take off her shirt, the Love Magnet looked at me and asked if it was okay. We have been talking every day about modesty and that we show no one our private parts, not even doctors, unless Mommy or Daddy are there. The Love Magnet remembered and did exactly what we told her to do. Woo-hoo!!)
Then we met with our new pediatric cardiologist. She listened to The Love Magnet's heart for a few minutes and checked her all over. Then Dr. Cardiologist turned to me and said "If I didn't see the scar, if I didn't have FOUR INCHES of paperwork sent to me from PCMC telling me exactly what was done, I would not know that your daughter had heart surgery. Her heart sounds perfect."
Perfect! (I love the sound of that word.)
What a present to add to the 40th birthday of Mr. Wonderful. Mr. Wonderful loves that I am older than him (but he was conceived first - I was born three months premature. So there.) We had a quiet family dinner at home (Garlic Lovers Shrimp and Scallops over pasta, Caesar salad)and a purchased cheesecake since I didn't have time to make a cake today. I think he enjoyed it. He loves his new birthday present (running shoes. REAL running shoes.) The only thing that would make this day perfect is if we got miracle news that our house in Utah sold.
Pssst. Anyone want to buy a fabulous 4 bedroom family house in Lehi? Leave a comment and I will let you know the details.
Leave a comment anyway. Tell Mr. Wonderful Happy Birthday. Tell The Love Magnet hooray for her heart.
